EATING DISORDER RECOVERY
‘Conquer & Shine’; Online Eating Disorder Programme
How is it different to other eating disorder help?
I believe that actually eating disorders aren’t really about food. On a surface level they might be, but underneath the restricting, the calorie counting, the exercising & all the other behaviours that you do, there is usually a much bigger issue – an unconscious programme running which is driving your ED thoughts, feelings & behaviours, making you feel worthless, not good enough and lacking confidence.
Conquer & Shine in 6 simple but powerful steps
Eating Disorder Treatment Sydney
1. Responsibility- ready for change
The first thing I need from you is the ‘want’ for things to be different. You don’t need to know what different means, but that you are fed up where you are & can’t go on like this anymore. All I ask is for you to make a 100% commitment to yourself & go all in on this. If you give me 100% I will give you 150%.
2. Honesty about how your ED is impacting you & your life
In our first session we will deep dive into your eating disorder & how it is impacting you, others around you & your life. This will begin to build a clear picture of where you are & we can then set goals on what you want from us working together.
3. Education & Understanding of your brain
I believe that before any deep work can begin you need to have a clear understanding of your brain, the science of how it works & what is going on deep down, driving your ED. This forms the basis of my ‘you are not broken’ approach- there is something going on in your brain, in terms of the neurological connections which is keeping you stuck. You will be educated & begin to understand why you are where you are without the need to constantly analyse & overthink.
4. Reprogramming your unconscious ED behaviours
With the understanding of your brain you will begin to realise that your Eating Disorder is simply a process which has been stored unconsciously. The deep work will begin when we look to understand what is driving your eating disorder behaviour & focus on rewiring these unhelpful connections in your brain. You might not consciously know what they are & that’s ok – we’ll explore it together in a way that feels safe and comfortable for you.
5. Rebuild your confidence and self-esteem
Once we’ve worked on resolving & reprogramming the underlying issues, we’ll work on helping you to build your feelings of self confidence, self-esteem & self worth, until we get to the next stage, which is where you’ll begin to feel ready to start making changes of your choice at a level & rate that you are ok with.
6. Recovery for the whole family
Eating Disorders impact the whole family, who also need to be involved in the recovery process. This is important that we create a united front where everyone is on the same page, educated & involved in what they need to do to keep making progress. I offer free telephone, Skype & 1:1 support to parents/partners of any clients I see (keeping in mind that all client’s details & case notes are kept strictly confidential.)
Eating disorders are complicated & everyone experiences them in a different way – there is no ‘one size fits all’ process that works. All the work I do with you will be individually tailored to your specific needs, circumstances & goals.
WHAT WOULD BE INCLUDED WITHIN YOUR CONQUER & SHINE EATING DISORDER PROGRAMME
1. Complementary appointment to get to know each other
If you are anything like I was, I saw many different therapists, often just for 1 session as I felt that they ‘didn’t get me’. This is why I offer a complementary 30 minute appointment in person or on Skype so we can get to know each other & from there we can make a decision whether we are the right match for each other. The ‘1 session then change' approach just slows down recovery & I want to make sure this does not happen for you.
2. 90 minute first session
This is where we delve a little deeper into you, your eating disorder & everything it is affecting in your life. I treat food as a symptom of something else going on for you & this session will look to explore where all of this came from & is the basis of how I build & what I include within your recovery programme.
3. Weekly outcome-based follow ups
Subsequent sessions will be weekly, either in person or on Skype. This ensures enough continuity & builds momentum when you begin to see changes. All follow ups are outcome-based rather than time-based so we will continue until whatever we are working on that week is resolved & you can leave feeling empowered, not cut off because of timings.
4. Weekly accountability tasks to complete
I am also here as your accountability buddy & part of this I will be asking you to complete a set of tasks each week between sessions. The purpose of these tasks is to continue to build on the great work we do in our sessions & to ensure we continue to progress over the next 7 days. These tasks can be anything from journalling, gratitude, self-love & kindness to working on diet, exercise or any physical symptoms.
5. Personalised between-session support programme
The thing that really got me about seeing a therapist was the fact that I could leave the session in a good place, but something may happen in the week & I would get triggered back & relapse. I felt un-supported & helpless knowing I had to wait another 5 days until I could see my therapist.
The fact is 60% of changes happen outside sessions! This is why you will also be given your own personalised between-session support programme which includes:
Round the clock support from me via email, Whats app, Facebook or text. I often receive messages such as;“ help I’m feeling really anxious today & I don’t know what to do”. I am here for you to help you manage any unwanted thoughts or feelings BEFORE you become triggered.
You will be given tasks & strategies to use daily to help keep you on track.
Mid session check in via phone or Skype. If you feel like you need a check-in from your accountability buddy mid-week we can talk through the last few days & set you up for success until you see me.
I will write you your own unique hypnosis recording for you to listen to before you go to sleep or as a calming tool. This again builds on the shifts which happen in our sessions & primes your unconscious for the deep-rooted changes which will help overcome the root cause of your eating disorder.
6. Diet and Gastro-intestional symptom management & advice
It is well known that during recovery GI symptoms can develop & this can really slow down your progress. General diet advice may not be helpful when you are suffering with GI symptoms. I have a diagnosed digestive condition which impacted my recovery, so I had to look outside the normal gut management advice. I will help you to manage any symptoms you are suffering with & offer diet & supplement advice to ensure that you stay on track.
7. Complementary monthly sessions for struggling parents/family members
Eating Disorders do not just impact the individual. There can also be huge emotional impact on their families & people close to them. My ED nearly destroyed my family relationship as nobody knew how to cope & help. This created tension & fear at home, rather than a safe place to recover. This can seriously impact the length of recovery.
Your mum, dad, brother, aunt, best friend will be offered a free session per month to support them through recovery.
8. Access to motivational tools & advice for FREE
You will be sent weekly tools, tips and strategies to keep you motivated and on track.
